SEDAC Citations Help Page
SEDAC gathers citations to our data to better understand how the data is being used and to provide our users examples of how others are using our data. The search boxes below and the filters to the left will help you narrow down the citations to just those of interest.
Citations are sorted from newest to oldest works by default. You can reverse this by sorting by Year in ascending order. Citations may also be sorted in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order by the last name of the first author.
You may also do a free text search of the article or publication title and abstract. Please note that while we allow abstracts to be searched we do not present the abstracts here due to copyright restrictions.
Search results may be narrowed by applying one or more filters to the results.
Uses Remote Sensing? – Many people are interested in the integration of SEDAC data sets with remotely sensed imagery. This filter allows you to see publications that cite both SEDAC data and data from satellites.
Year – Year of publication
Publication type – indicates type of publication such as article in a peer-reviewed journal, books, reports, etc.
SEDAC Data Collections – SEDAC data are organized by collection and sets within a collection if the set can be determined. Each data collection and each data set within a collection have short identifiers associated with them. For example, the short identifier for Gridded Population of the World, version 4 is gpw-v4. If a data set can be determined, the identifier for that set is appended to the collection ID. For example, if population density data from GPW v4, is cited the identifier is gpw-v4-population-density. For a complete list of data sets and collections, see http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/data/sets/info
Citations can be exported in CSV and XML formats. The CSV export produces a file in which citations are separated by rows and each column corresponds to standard RIS fields such as author, title, etc. In addition there are columns for what SEDAC data was cited, whether remote sensing data was cited, and a complete, formatted, citation. The XML export produces nodes instead (with same fields as CSV).
SEDAC provides a link to the citing publication whenever possible. We link to open access and limited access publications. The link for the citations were current when the citations were found, but we make no guarantee that older links still work.
